Royalty is coming to Plummergen. The much-beloved Princess Georgina is due to arrive shortly, and the villagers are plotting to outdo their neighbors in Murreystone and make a grand impression during the visit. But at the same time, a much more sinister plot is brewing. A mysterious underground organization has plans for "The Petite Princess." And Miss Seeton - unwittingly, of course - helps them carry out their scheme when she creates a disturbance during a tour of the local power plant. When the hubbub has subsided, Georgina is missing. Now Scotland Yard is questioning Miss Seeton about the disappearance of the princess - and the retired art teacher herself will be in terrible danger as a treasonous scheme unfolds...

Crane's most recent Miss Seeton novels include Sweet Miss Seeton, Sold to Miss Seeton, Miss Seeton Rules, Miss Seeton Undercover, Starring Miss Seeton, Miss Seeton Plants Suspicion, and Miss Seeton Goes to Bat.From Kirkus Reviews:
Away with the petty intrigues of the Kentish village of Plummergen and its equally petty rivalry with neighboring Murreystone. After besting Murreystone in a school essay contest, Plummergen is due for a visit from none other than Princess Georgina, darling of the royal family and all England, to congratulate the winning essayist and accept a bouquet at her hands. Who better to escort the inconsequential young winner than retired schoolteacher/Scotland Yard consultant Miss Emily Seeton, the Battling Brolly (Miss Seeton Undercover, p. 248, etc.)--and who more likely than Miss Seeton to end up providing unwitting cover for a quartet of kidnappers (calling themselves Catesby, Rookwood, Keyes, and Winter--quiz time for British historians) who have their eyes on Georgy Girl? Naturally, as soon as Miss Seeton is freed from her arrest for high treason, she's able to draw a sketch that sets the Yard on the trail of the abductors; and naturally, she soon falls into the villains' clutches herself, sharing an impromptu cell (don't worry: it's got all mod cons) with the Princess, who's just as woolly in her way as the indomitable Miss Seeton. Before the final heraldic flourish, there'll be a pair of homicides (one sabotaged auto, one exploding privy) and another revelatory drawing whose clue is based on a deliciously dim-witted pun. Grave, charming, and foolish--the sort of case that suits Miss Seeton down to the ground. -- Copyright ©1994, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
